Have you started having those back-to-school teacher nightmares yet? I have them every summer. If you don't, consider yourself fortunate.
And I'm trying really hard not to hate you.
It's tough though. I'm just so jealous. Those nightmares are rough.
Don't get me wrong. I love meeting a new group of students. Nothing is more promising than the potential of a new school year!
Shiny new Flair pens help too.
But I have recurring dreams about not being able to find my classroom. And about the class from h-e double hockey sticks, with kids who throw things out the second story window. Often, my nightmares involve me being totally unprepared. I stand in front of these kids -the best, most attentive kids in the history of education- and I've got nothing.
The only thing I can do to quell the nightmares and alleviate my suffering, is to be prepared. I make the copies I need for the first few weeks, and I make a "big picture" plan for the first few units of study.
Needless to say, I will depend on TpT resources- mine and those of others- to get me through. And I will be shopping at TpT during the Love Back to School site-wide sale. I love to save 28%, and I love to shop at the Literary League stores below!
